You are just, O Lord, and your judgement is right; treat your servant in accord with your merciful love.


First Reading: Colossians 3:12-17

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Colossians.

Brothers and sisters:
Put on, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved,
compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness,
and patience, forbearing one another and,
if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other;
as the Lord has forgiven you,
so you also must forgive.
And over all these put on love,
which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
to which indeed you were called in the one body.
And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,
as you teach and admonish one another in all wisdom,
and as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs
with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, in word or deed,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him.

The Word of the Lord




Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 150:1b-2.3-4.5-6 (R. 6)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!

Praise God in his holy place;
praise him in his mighty firmament.
Praise him for his powerful deeds;
praise him for his boundless grandeur.

O praise him with sound of trumpet;
praise him with lute and harp.
Praise him with timbrel and dance;
praise him with strings and pipes.

O praise him with resounding cymbals;
praise him with clashing of cymbals.
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!

R/. Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
If we love one another, God abides in us,
and his love is perfected in us.



Gospel: Luke 6:27-38

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“I say to you that hear, Love your enemies,
do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you,
pray for those who abuse you.
To the one who strikes you on the cheek,
offer the other also;
and from the one who takes away your cloak
do not withhold your coat as well.
Give to everyone who begs from you,
and of the one who takes away your goods
do not ask them again.
And as you wish that people would do to you,
do so to them.

“If you love those who love you,
what credit is that to you?
For even sinners love those who love them.
And if you do good to those who do good to you,
what credit is that to you?
For even sinners do the same.
And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive,
what credit is that to you?
Even sinners lend to sinners,
to receive as much again.
But love your enemies, and do good,
and lend, expecting nothing in return;
and your reward will be great,
and you will be sons and daughters of the Most High;
for he is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish.
Be merciful, even as and your Father is merciful.

“Judge not, and you will not be judged;
condemn not, and you will not be condemned;
forgive, and you will be forgiven;
give, and it will be given to you;
good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over,
will be put into your lap.
For the measure you give
will be the measure you get back.”

The Gospel of the Lord

Communion Antiphon
Like the deer that yearns for running streams, so my soul is yearning for you, my God; my soul is thirsting for God, the living God.
